Several of the former zirconia pieces have been swapped out for silicone, and details like hinges and magnets have been improved and made stronger. The charging port has also been switched from micro- USB to USB-C. Despite the lowered price point, the IQC performs and satisfies just like its critically acclaimed predecessor.
The SLX was already the best grinder around, and the V2.5 (Released early 2020) makes it even better. It retains all the positives of the original while improving the build quality. It has a smooth grinding action that does not require any effort, it grinds the herbs to a perfectly fluffy consistency, and it never needs to be cleaned. So, regardless of which kind of vaporizer you have, the SLX will be the perfect companion for it.

Both devices employ a hybrid conduction/convection oven that delivers consistent vapor quality at each use. Both vapes represent vaping at it’s best.
The Vista Mini 2 definitely lives up to its namesake- it’s one of the smallest and most portable dab rigs on the market to date.

Its straightforward user interface is appealing to beginners who are looking for their first dab rig but find others too complex or expensive.

With its hybrid convection/ conduction oven and borosilicate glass mouthpiece – the Arizer Air 2 is definitely geared to provide the best-tasting vapor. It also features a wide temperature range, a clear digital display, and a device body that remains cool, even after successive sessions. While it may not be the most portable dry herb vaporizer, Arizer has made sure to augment that by including a good number of accessories in its kit- including a dedicated carrying case.
The Crystal 2 is a high-end, durable Dab Pen. The “Coilless” quartz bowl and the glass mouthpiece produce flavorful vapor that remains pure and tasty throughout the entire session.

The Utillian 722 offers excellent value with a high performance to price ratio. It uses convection heating to efficiently heat your herb and an isolated airpath to achieve pure and flavorful vapor. Simple and straightforward, the device has a one-button interface that is used to toggle between its 4 well-calibrated preset temperature settings. The 722 is recommended for beginners looking for a value-driven vape that does not compromise vapor quality.
The Session is smart and uniquely designed to be an all-in-one extract vaporizer or what’s better known as a hybrid vape. This device can be used both as an eNail with existing Rigs or as a “standalone” wax vape. It features a neutral ceramic coil, three pre-set temperatures, and a simple straightforward user interface. The vapor produced ranges from mild to dense but is quite flavor-forward. Although, the best reason to buy the Session would most likely be its duality.

Overall, these are the qualities of a functional and versatile oil vaporizer.
The Yocan UNI line is a great example of good design progression at a very good price. But since there really is not much of a difference between all three devices, it all comes down to what you want out of a vaporizer. If you value discretion and portability, I’d highly recommend either the UNI or UNI S. If what you’re looking for is more control, or are still starting to experiment with your experience- the UNI Pro should be more your speed.

The Arizer Go, or the ArGo is an ultra-portable, mid-tier vaporizer that features a convection/conduction heating system, variable temperatures, and an OLED screen.

Sleekly designed and conveniently modular- each of the Connect’s parts attaches magnetically, including the magnetic lid which replaces the traditional carb cap. It also features a ceramic bowl, which means this device is better suited for users who prioritize flavor over vapor density.
The KandyPens C-Box (Pro & Mini) both have intuitive design and functions great in their respective price range. The C-Box Pro is button-activated that has four temp settings, while the C-Box Mini is draw-activated that has a single voltage setting (3.7V). Choosing between the two is a matter of preference. As for me, I liked using the Pro version since it can fit bigger cartridges and has four variable voltages for different vaping profiles. Regardless of what you choose, both vapes can produce good quality vapor that’s appealing for beginners.
The 5 is a low-cost wax pen that is capable of producing intense and strong vapor. It has a thick and sturdy build with a long battery life that can last for a couple of sessions. It is a real lungbuster of a vape pen but if big clouds are what you want, then big clouds are what you’ll get. However, if you favor flavor over vapor production, there are probably better options out there.
